Friends, I was wondering, has anybody figured out what is the approximate time which should be spent on each type of verbal question during an exam, obviously it depends on the strength of each individual, but are there clear guidelines as to how much I should be devoting to sentence correction, critical reasoning and comprehension reading?

What you want to do is make sure you're on the clock per interval. Here's a trick that work for me.

Q1 - 75
Q5 - 67
Q10 - 58
Q15 - 49
Q20 - 40
Q25 - 31
Q30 - 22
Q35 - 13
Q40 - 4

I give myself 7 minutes to hit the start of question 5 then 9 minutes per every 5 questions. Fall behind and try to catch up. Too fast and slow yourself down. Do the same for math except 10 minutes per every 5 questions. You'll build up buffer times with easier qtns and have more time for the difficult ones. But the timing schedule will make sure you don't get obsessed with any one question.
